Top 3 Home Projects To Complete In 2021

As we say goodbye to 2020, we head into a new year full of new beginnings and opportunities. Hopefully, this new year will bring all of us health and prosperity, and possibly some new completed home projects that have been on your list- That’s where we come in!  We have completed thousands of exterior home projects in the DMV area and now, the Greater Philadelphia area, as we continue to expand our company. In this blog, we will share the top 3 home projects you should consider completing in the new year.

1. A Roof Replacement
Experts agree that an average lifespan of a roof is 15-20 years. After roofs hit the 20 year mark, the risk of having damage, leaks and mold increases greatly. A roof replacement is a big project to take on, and we know that! We’ve completed thousands of roof replacements, and have made many customers extremely happy. We try to make the process as easy as possible and go to great lengths to ensure satisfaction! Some benefits of a roof replacement is enhanced curb appeal, increased home value and decreased energy bills! The first step is scheduling a free appointment, where one of our project consultants will come to your home to assess the state of your roof. After we give you a quote, we understand you have to think it over, so it stays valid for the year.

 

2. New Siding
Many people aren’t aware that their siding needs to be replaced, so this project tends to stay on the back burner for many years. If you notice warping or cracking, any form of rot or a spike in energy bills these are all reasons to replace your siding. Keeping an eye on the state of your siding is extremely important because it is the barrier between the outside elements and the walls inside your home. Replacing your siding protects the insulation of your home, which will regulate the temperature inside. Regulated temperatures inside your home are pertinent because we experience very hot summers and cold winters. This project is also known to increase your home’s value by a significant amount!

 

3. Windows

Finally, the last project to add to your priority list in 2021 is a window replacement. There are many visible warning signs when it is time for new windows such as  your energy bills increasing, condensation, decaying frames, and window operation. If opening your windows feels like a mini workout, it is probably time for a replacement! Depending on the size and type of windows in your home this project could become a large project, which is why working with MLM is essential! We work with many budgets and a variety of homes daily, making us experts in satisfied customers!

 

Our main priority has always been making sure our customers love their home. We would be happy to help you accomplish any home exterior project you have on your list for 2021. Schedule your appointment with us today!

 

Tips For Every Homeowner Interested In A Roof Replacement

If you’re in need of a roof replacement but don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place! From deciding on a roofing company to choosing the right products- we are here to guide you.
1. Choose an Owen’s Corning (or similar) Certified Contractor
Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Preferred Contractors are the top tier of a premier network of roofing professionals dedicated to service, reliability and professional craftsmanship. For such a big project and investment, you want to make sure the company you choose is the best of the best. MLM Home Improvement is a Platinum Preferred Owens Corning Contractor and one of the few in the DMV. A roof replacement is a big deal, and you need to hire a company that’s exceptionally qualified!
2. Make sure your company is local & reputable
It’s important to choose a company that is local to your area and that has an exceptional track record. Whether you get recommendations from neighbors or friends, or check reviews on Google or Yelp, this research will give you real people’s experiences with this company. This information is what you need in order to make the best choice for your home.
3. Top Quality Products Pay Off in the End
A saying that has been around is “you always get what you pay for”. There are just some things that you don’t choose the best deal on and the roof of your home is one of those things! When you invest in top quality products, it will not only save you on repair costs but it will prolong your roof’s life. These factors or important whether you are living in your home forever or planning to sell it!
4. Types of Roof Materials
If you’ve never gotten a roof replacement or it has been 20 years since you have, there is a lot that has changed. When you have a consultation with one of our experts, take the time to hear out all your options. The more traditional shingles are asphalt, slate and shakes but there are other materials that are skyrocketing in popularity such as metal roofs and architectural shingles. These materials made with newer technology might be more costly, but could also last longer and provide better appeal.
5. Stay Flexible but Firm
Last but not least, staying flexible but firm. There are a lot of moving parts that go in to a roof replacement that could affect a timeline. While the actual installation is typically done within the same day, the ordering of materials and weather may affect when that installation is able to be completed. At the same time, you must stay firm to ensure you get exactly what you want and it is what you signed for in your contract.
